Teamsters Local 727 has begun the process of fairly recalculating union dues rates for commissioned beverage members based on their 2015 earnings.
Going forward, Local 727 plans to recalculate commissioned members’ dues rates each year.
“Routes change and the economy fluctuates, so this is the only way to ensure fairness for our members,” said John Coli Jr., President of Local 727.
Commissioned beverage members are some of the nearly 2,000 beverage industry members who last year transferred to Local 727 from Teamsters Local 710, which has been in trusteeship since July 2014.
All commissioned members will receive notice when the new rates have been calculated.
Members with questions can contact their Local 727 business representative at (847) 696-7500.
